Our room was so clean and the beds were so comfy. The shower was roomy and the shower head was great. The breakfast was good and staff was very friendly. I highly recommend it. We were about 2 miles from campus and close to a Krispy Kreme Donut store!

This is an amazing hotel. Me and my fiancé stayed here after a very long trip & I don't have one complaint. The shower was absolutely. The shower pressure was awesome. The bed was so soft and comfort. The breakfast was wonderful also. FYi- the hotel was so clean and smelled like bleach.

To my misfortune that I had not stayed at this hotel before. That mistake won't happen again. Being an IHG Platinum member, I have stayed at many, many IHG properties. Friends; this is one of the best in my travels and would rank very high in my personal Top 10. Front Desk person "Jordan" was of special note and much... More

Love the new renovations at the Holiday Inn Express in Tuscaloosa. Everything is fresh and new. Rooms are spotless and most comfortable. Great location, close to the University of Alabama, shopping and restaurants. Great Value, no better lodging in Tuscaloosa

We were returning home from Florida and were looking for a nice place to stay overnight. This was not far off the road we were traveling, so it was convenient. The staff was very polite and helpful. We arrived in time to relax out beside the pool, which was very peaceful, before going to dinner. The room and beds were... More

My wife and I stayed here recently to attend our niece's graduation from the university and we were delighted by this hotel.

We travel frequently, spending at least 3 weekends a month in hotels. This was one of the best we have ever stayed at. The hotel has been recently renovated.
